Internet bidding is a great option for buyers that won’t be around their computer on sale day or don’t have fast speed internet. When pre-bidding opens just days before the live sale, buyers can set their proxy bid (max bid) and the system will bid for them before the sale and during. Be careful – if you set a proxy bid on more than one horse, you may end up owning them all. Can you set a proxy bid before the sale starts and bid past that online during the live sale? Yes, you can set a proxy bid for the system to bid for you. When the bidding goes past your proxy, you can bid live online. Please know that just because you set a max bid, it doesn’t mean you will win the horse if it sells for that amount. All bids whether they are floor, phone, or online are placed to the auctioneer. The auctioneer decides which bids he can accept, one at a time. Be sure to set your absolute max so you are not disappointed when a floor bidder gets the horse for the same amount as your max bid.
IMPORTANT: If you are a registered bidder and click to bid at any point, you will be the current winning bidder. No matter whether your cat, dog, or 2 year old clicks the bid button, you will be winning the lot. Bids can not be retracted at any point. Keep your username and password in a safe spot so no one can login and bid for you. If your account clicks to bid and you are the highest bidder, you will win the lot and be required to pay within 2 hours of sale closing.
